If you’d like to make your kids very, very happy, and also save some money, check out the Groupon for Great Wolf Lodge.
Prices depend on check-in date and the kind of room you reserve but in most cases they’ll save you some bucks over the regular price and include passes to the 80,000 square foot indoor waterpark for the day you check in (starting at 1 p.m.) and the day you check out, until closing (and any days in between.)
Note: You might also be interested in this Groupon for Carowinds!
So you can pay for one night and get two days of swimming.
Check-in dates are through August 30th, 2019, although some days are sold out.
The price you pay depends on the date of the visit.
I clicked around a ton and learned that the cheapest rates ($169 for a family suite with two queen beds and a sofa bed and water park wristbands for up to six people) is available Monday, August 19th, to Thursday, August 22nd, 2019.
Note that these dates are before school starts up for Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools. So if you can get there on those weekdays, you will get a very good deal. Sunday, August 18th, is $199, also a good deal.
Yes, there are taxes and fees, but this deal will still save you money!
